If you know me, you know I am stubborn. Super stubborn. I really do take pride in it. So it is something of a radical departure for me to say this: I don’t like my current knitting project, and I’m going to unravel it. I had been thinking grumpily that I need to set targets of numbers of rows to do per day to make myself do it when Mr Han asked me if I was a sewer and not a knitter any more. That made me a bit sad because knitting is my first textile love! I replied that I just wasn’t enjoying my current project. In his typically practical way he said “don’t make it then, make something else”. The more I thought about it, the more I agreed. Why waste fancy yarn and hours and hours to make something that will be (already is) full of mistakes and I will hate doing?
It’s going to be frogged (I would like to know why knitters call unravelling something is called frogging!) so I took to Ravelry to look for a new pattern and I found this:
The pattern is by Emily Wessel at Tincan Knits. I am excited about making this and it looks a lot easier than the lace scarf. I am too pushed for knitting time – I need TV knitting! It does help to visualise things when they are in an almost exact same colour as the yarn I have too… Wish me luck!
